Ginger For Kidney Disease - The Benefits of Ginger as part of your kidney disease treatment

Episode 115: Ginger For Kidney Disease - The Benefits of Ginger as part of your kidney disease treatment. Is ginger good for kidney disease patients and how can it be incorporated into a healthy diet? Ginger has been used in the diet for centuries, even for illnesses such as kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is an inflammatory situation. The kidneys are working hard, 24/7, to help keep everything inside our bodies balanced. So when the kidneys lose some function, whether it’s 5% or 95%, inflammation occurs. We can look to our food to help decrease inflammation, even when related to kidney disease! Spices like ginger are powerhouses when it comes to a healthy diet for kidneys! They provide helpful benefits that can benefit us in so many ways! We will discuss those benefits in this episode of Dadvice TV.
